I Did Some Sewing!

Okay, so I quilt for others and every now and then I get to play and sew too!  Actually the plan for my day was to load a large quilt top for custom work and then I would start the actual quilting after lunch.  Well, after lunch the weather turned to thunder; I shut the longarm down since I will not take the chance of running it while storms brew outside.  I now had "free" time.

In a way I didn't mind since I'd been itching to just do some simple mindless piecing.  When Sinta and Sherry announced the latest new patterns from Miss Rosie Quilt Co. I was smitten.  I love instant gratification sewing and the new Little Bites patterns are wonderful.  (not that I need another project!)  Here is a start of "Speck."  I'm using Kathy Schmitz latest line called, "Bits & Pieces" by Moda.

You can see more about the latest announcement of the Schnibbles parade here at Sinta's blog.  She has links to all else since I'm being lazy and trying to hurry to get back to quilting....before afternoon storms roll in.  Enjoy your weekend!

I was smitten by that pattern too. The fabric you chose is gorgeous. Did you have the "candy" pieces (mine-charms) for it? These pre-cuts are so fun to enjoy all the different choices from a fabric line. How nice you got to sew :-)
